There should be a couple ways.. Assuming the tooltip data and the displayed data are already associated, you can do as suggested and pass in the popop information as part of the dgdata.. Then in the fillindata you 'set the tooltip of field 1 of me to ... the data that was passed in with the array. To do this though i _Think_ you'd need a custom behavior for every column.
To get around this, you could use a mouseenter in the script of the datagrid itself that does something like.. on mouseenter get the text of the target -- then use the text of the target to look up your tooltip data and.. set the tooltip of the target to "whateveryouwant" end mouseenter i tested by setting the tooltip to a random number and it seems to work fine. If you're using a form rather than a grid, its much easier, just use the first method in the behavior script to set whatever tooltips you like as part of the fillindata. A single script edit to handle all tooltips. On Tue, Jul 11, 2017 at 7:43 PM, Bob Sneidar via use-livecode < firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > Yup.
